Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

I bought this car from the original owner in 2009 with 38K miles on it. Since then, I have had to replace the engine mount three times! recently, the car has been overheating while driving with smoke coming from under the hood. At first, I had some hoses replaced. The mechanic has now advised that it needs a radiator replacement. I have called around and dealerships say that it is hard to get to the radiator on this car due to its design, so the cost is $1600. At this point, I am afraid to drive the car. I have read through these complaints and Chrysler has known about the engine mount problems with this car since at least 2011, and still no recall! several other people have also experienced the overheating issue. I am baffled because Chrysler has just brought out a new version of this car for 2016, without addressing any of the known problems with the original version of the car!

Engine cradle is extremely rusted for the year and mileage of the car. Would not pass state inspection last week. Passenger side and mid section of engine cradle rusted enough that you could put your fingers thru it. Readin online this seems to be a major problem with these cars. This appears to be the only rust on the vehicle.

A bolt came out at high speed. After searching, it was found to be a "knuckle bolt" on the front, right side of car. It appears to be a bolt that holds the steering system to the front, right rotor and wheel. It was not a caliper bolt. It was a very large bolt that is necessary for the car to move. It caused the part of the car that holds the brake pads to jam into the inside of the tire rim, thus not allowing the car to move. At high speeds, this could be deadly.

A bolt came out at low speed that would not allow the vehicle to roll. After searching, it was found to be a "knuckle bolt" on the front, left side of car.
